It should be obvious to everyone what my position is on this matter by now. It's good to be aware of enforcement efforts to emphasize that the danger is real. We will be seeing increased enforcement activities in this area.

A link to the recall noticeis up on the FunFresh web site - buried at the bottom of pages.

Sebastian is right, companies that are promoting raw chocolate products are going to have to institute strict controls to ensure their products are safe. This includes documented GMPs, sanitization steps, as well as post-manufacturing testing.

Bloody stools and possible kidney failure are a small price to pay for higher antioxidants.

ouch!

never been a fan of "raw" whatsoever chocolate.

It is a painful exercise to explain every time the truth behind the "raw".... who know where this accident will bring... Is this the end of the "raw"?

i don't wish anyone to go out of business, but

maybe a bit of rules by the FDA will bring some clarity to the matter.
